Bachelor of Fine Arts

Erik Mehlen

I attended the North East School of the Arts and graduated magna cum laude with a BFA in Illustration from Savannah College of Art and Design. Over the last 15 years I have been working as a freelance artist and illustrator with accolades from the Society of Illustrators and the American Advertising Federation. I have two published children’s books and I co-manage a gallery with a group of other artists downtown at Bluestar every First Friday. When I’m not making art I enjoy hiking outdoors with my girlfriend, watching movies, cooking, and exploring other creative outlets. In life, we never stop being students. I love to learn and I love to teach that attitude to others.

My passion for the visual arts and education has led me to an exciting new chapter of teaching here at Tejeda and I am both proud and honored for the opportunity to share that with the students and parents of our community. As a visual arts instructor it is my goal to help encourage your child to succeed and discover their artistic potential. The visual arts are not only a way into discovering your inner creativity, but is also a means of leisure and stress-relief, connection with self and community, and the development of lifelong problem-solving skills.
